In October I’m shooting my first short film in black and white. My friend is going to be the gaffer and we’re about to prepare ourselves for the shoot. We’ve only ever shot in color and the challenge of shooting in black and white will be really fun.
I was wondering if anyone had any tips for lighting for black and white and what one might think about when shooting black and white?
Is there any point in still thinking about which colors we’re using? Especially since it’s going to be digitally graded I figure it would be easier to isolate elements in the image if we used colors to dissect things in the frame. Should I try to shoot my main subjects in the color temperature of the cameras native white balance to try and capture the most amount of data in these areas?
